Re: S CORP VS OTHERS

Re: Pricing suggestions

I agree 100%. If everyone had that same thought process most would be making a lot more money. Too many windshield repair technicians compete on price only rather than focusing on the quality of their work, customer service, and sales/marketing skills.

Re: Best accounting source

We still use QuickBooks Enterprise but if I was just starting I would look at other options to be sure and I definitely wouldn't recommend Enterprise for a mobile service. I have quite a bit of experience with other versions of Quickbooks as well, and although I'm not a fan of Quickbooks online it i...

Re: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from all of us here at Delta Kits! It's been a challenging year in many respects but I am blessed with many good friends, some of whom I am fortunate enough to work with, an amazing family, and good health. God's blessings never cease to amaze me!

Headlight safety

If you have not seen the recent article on GlassBytes on headlight safety you might want to print it out and show it to customers. Seems like a no brainer that clean and clear headlights work better than dirty discolored headlights but having something to back up your claims is always helpful. Studi...

Re: Business Insurance Quote

Sounds high. I would find an independent rep with a good reputation and have him or her do the searching for you. Liberty and Travelers are generally pretty competitive in this area. State farm has never been competitive for my home, auto, business liability and garage keepers, life, or umbrella ins...

Re: Multiple repairs

I think they they vary on the number they will pay for but I'm afraid I don't know any specifics.

Re: Multiple repairs

For me it's more a question of how good the repairs look and how much the replacement costs. If the repairs all come out great as they should, I don't have a limit. We don't normally see many windshields needing more than 2-3 repairs at one time but some of my fleet accounts would sometimes have dou...
